Randomly came across this band several weeks ago. There’s something all very unique yet comfortably familiar. The piano sounds so bright and full you half expect Kelly Clarkson to start singing a ballad about a boyfriend who couldn’t learn to love.

Joseph Secchiaroli’s voice reminds me a little of Jason Mraz but his singing and lyrical style really separates him from the drab pop world. This song features long arpeggiated runs that seduce you into following his words. It’s a great example of their fantastic compositional skills. Focusing on the rhythm and allowing the melody to revolve around it in a swirl.

The band stems off of a breakup of the band This Day & Age but has a vastly different sound. I approve of the changes made and look forward to hearing more material. I might love them even more if they choose another studio for any follow-up album. Go for darker rather than poppy. But that’s just me.

You can check out this album, as well as the 16 bit version (don’t ask me why, I’m not sure either…) of it on Spotify.
And you can check out This Day & Age as well.
